We have several Revox A77/B77s at different speeds. As well as the
capstan diameter being reduced for lower speeds, the casting of the
capstan motor is drilled offset. This maintains the angle between the
pinch roller and the capstan giving optimum "tape-wrap" of the capstan.
Swapping capstan motors is relatively easy on the B77. However, two
capacitors on the speed control board need to be changed (for low speed)
as well as the EQ components on the reproduce amplifiers.

Swapping circuit boards, complete aligned head assemblies (full, half,
quarter) are all relatively easy on the B77. However, tape handling is
not as gentle as on a Studer but you have to cut your clothes to suit
